midterm elections. >> barack obama ran a brilliant campaign. the progressives showed they could get their act together and they could run a campaign. it was modern 21st century and beat everyone else. what this has done, i think basically damaged if not destroyed the idea that progressives and government can run a project and run it well. >> this thing is grist for the mills of comedy central. >> you know where i disagree? i think that the bulk of the population, take everything you say and make the assumption everything you say is absolutely true. the bulk of the population doesn't know. most people don't even know what obama care is people are not paying attention. i can't imagine it having any impact on election 2014 or 2016. i don't even see the republicans being effective to communicate any sort of message like that great amount of groundwork the democrats have done in getting the vote. >> i think you are correct in this sense. this is as of now, a jolt if you will to the beltway. people, i mean, not simply just conservatives, they are jolted that this is -- that they were real

forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was written, it said that members of congress and quote, congressional staff, would have to go into the exchanges, but just about a month ago, the office of personnel management came out with a ruling saying that congressional staff meant official office staff. how about that for bureaucratic language. what does that mean? that's up to each member of congress, the office of personnel management said. so then what we have now is members of congress, some of them like darrell issa, saying that he plans to exempt all of his staff, saying none of my staff is official staff. he says he doesn't want anyone to go into the exchanges and that's why there's others that are particularly questioning committee staff or leadership staff, do they count. so we're seeing a lot of divide and right now at this hour is when congress
not to campaign against them in their re, in their re-elections. but i, look, i believe firmly this is a trust but verify situation. with senator cruz. there its nos nothing stopping from going to the floor or going out to the cameras and saying, well, you know, the senate is not doing what it need to do. you just, you do not spend as many months as he has spent in the senate, however lit they'll hathey'll -- however lit they'll have been in the senate. beating the hell out of the constitution and republican colleagues and over one lunch decide i will back off. leave you alone. >> we are going to fiend out, josh, whether this means simply not naming names anymore or just kind of as jonathan said, be able to go out and say, the senate isn't working, and our side of the senate isn't working well. >> well, expect he will go out and say that. the senate conservatives fund. mitch mcconnell declared war on it. they have been backing his oement opponent in the kentucky senate race. and how the senate conservatives fund is working to help democrats by undermining the republican majority in the senate.

and february. and probably one more round, again, before we get to the next election. so there's a long ways to go, but, you know, i think obama, you know, i don't like to get too caught up in any given poll, but this is a pretty big drop for him. and it shows his unfavorable number going up pretty high, and i think there's just been a round of things that haven't played his thing. even like the syria thing. today we have the news that they're actually getting to the destruction of chemical weapons in syria. some of the equipment. >> it's incredible. >> seems like a win, but yet that whole episode didn't really work out for him politically. in a scandal. the obama care stuff. he's taking on a lot of weight right now politically. >> okay. joy, far from learning their lesson, today the senate gop used filibuster rules to block two of the president's nominees. one on housing, and the other appeals court judge nominee patricia millert, a woman even ted cruz has cited for her, i'm quoting mr. cruz, fine professional credentials. so i guess no matter the president nominated her, that's it, she's n

election? >> we are as far away from that is possible and i think the rollout has been disastrous and kathleen sebelius took responsibility for that today, saying that it has been a debacle. but the question is how does that impact voters and you take a state like new jersey and you heard a congressman say that there's 800,000 people who will be negatively impacted with policy changes in the look out at california and there is a larger number there because that was a highly unregulated insurance market. >> hundreds of thousands by each provider. cancellations and you're hearing about. >> if you look at new jersey and california, they are both blue states. it's not likely to have a big shift in terms of the senate race and certainly not when you get to 2016 in the presidential race. but if this thing implodes and then becomes a matter of blame game on a massive scale than we what we are seeing now, then there is a potential for fallout and right now you have to say that it doesn't look like it. if you get to a state like florida, they could have some complaints. but right now polit
for election. i mean, they are scrambling trying to figure out, the democrats, what to do, all the ones who voted for it. you know, i wish that the republicans hadn't shut down the government in order to make a point, because they could have sat back and let this thing crash of its own weight which it's clearly doing. and the thing that startles me so is to have kathleen sebelius and to have the president say, well, we didn't know when you see things that are saying, you get examples of stuff that they heard that said, guess what? we're going to have a problem here. this is the biggest thing this administration has done. they put all their marbles in this basket, and to not be on top of it 24/7 to make sure you got it right, we haven't ever unrolled or rolled out a big plan like this that hasn't had some glitches, fair enough. that happens. but to have it this bad, to have things fall off the edge this badly that is just -- connell: you bring up a good political point, and that brings up a question about the future because a couple weeks ago we were talking about the internal war inside you
unite together and let this thing unfold and show a viable alternative we can win that '16 election and that's when things start to turn around and that's when this country explodes with economic growth. you have to get the what and the why right. >> the what, we're doing pretty well, lore taxes, less intrusive government and what we have to do is connect to the whys. why are these policies important to the average person? part of the responsibility that we have is we can't say our doors are open. come on in. we have to be willing to go into places that we would consider an uncommon location for republicans to show up. sometimes we're only relevant every two or four years. i want to be relevant 365 days a year. >> that's what i will be talking about tomorrow. it's what we as conservatives want the kind of policies that unite us. >> give me a specific. >> one specific example and one that paul ryan and i have talked about extensively is pro-family tax reform. the kind of tax reform that would acknowledge the contribution that parents make. working parents are, in a sense, taxed twice

's going to pay for this next election day, but his crocodile tears aren't going to impress everybody. everybody knows the republicans never wanted to be part of this, never wanted to own any part of it, never wanted to provide health care for the american citizens. they were in control of congress for a long time. and all of these problems existed, higher premiums, all the brang runsies and so forth. they existed when they were in control and they never did a thing about it. >> one of your colleagues made a strange request in the hearing today. here is congressman of colorado. >> i would like to submit a waiver from my district for obama care and hope that you would consider waiving obama care for the fourth congressional district. >> he wants to exempt his district from the law. but more than 102,000 people in his district are uninsured. so he wants to stop them from getting coverage or getting benefits like free preventive care and cheaper prescriptions. it's outrageous on the face of it, congressman. >> of course it is. and then you have people like him in texas like ted cruz. tex
